Five years ago the Rotary began a partnership with the Grand Angels – where the Rotary would provide grant funds and the Grand Angels would then distribute to selected families in the community. Traditionally, the Grand Lake Rotary would sponsor a bowling tournament and silent auction at the Grand Lake Lanes – where the money contributed would be distributed to local non-profits, most importantly, the Grand Angels.

In 2016 the Grand Lanes were no longer available – but the summer success of the Rotary Bingo and Pancake breakfasts, surpassed the Rotary’s financial forecasts and allowed for continued charitable contributions.

For 2016, the Rotary was able to present a check in the amount of $2,500 to the Grand Angels; another sign that the holiday spirit of giving is vibrant and thriving in Grand County
